For those of you unable to make it to Baton Rouge, you missed out last night on a fabulous catfish dinner with fried potatoes, fried sweet potatoes, fried mushrooms, and King's cake for desert. Uummmm. Uuummmm !

What a fabulous time of meeting up with my PC brothers, putting faces with handles, and just having a really great time. Today while the ladies auxiliary tours around, we will have more great times of chatting, eating, and eating. Oh, did I already say eating ?

Goodlife,

While I don't personaly eat Catfish, it sounds like a feast fit for kings. All you mentioned is fully approved and encouraged on my Taste-Good Prostate Cancer Diet, so good going, guys. Keep it up. BTW, was there a tiny baby Jesus inside the King Cake?

Give my best to the gang.

Did Jeff make you guys get in the water and stick your hand in the hole to get the catfish? Sorry we had to change plans at the last minute. Sounds like fun!!

I'm so disappointed that I couldn't go because of something out of my control. I wish I was there with you. Have a good time and please keep the reports coming.

Jeff announced that the person who found their cake contained the baby Jesus had to have the next GFMPH gathering.  There were 2 cakes,everyone got at least one slice, and there were no leftovers.  Strangly, there was no baby Jesus found.  Who could imagine that Cajun Jeff bought 2 defective cakes...... tongue

James - I don't think the cakes were defective (they were too darn delicious) -it was just after all that wonderful catfish and oniion rings and mushrooms and sweet patayta fries - the guys just kept inhaling the wonderful food - including baby jesus..

- just waiting for anyone to complain of a bad B.M. or having a religious conversion ( now having baby jesus inside of them)
:-)
-just an amazing day - weekend - event

We used Jeff's Tens unit to create an color doppler scan for the cake - found the loaded slice, and quarantined it so that Jeff would default as next year's host.

Ah, the wonders of engineering.
 
(Well, really, we think that is seasonal, but it was a good idea - no one complained of anything "extra crunchy")

James,

Did I just detect a proselytizing attempt ?

Just kidding of course.

The catfish was best by the 60 pounds of crayfish, or crawdads, or mudbugs, depending on which area of the world you are from. Just absolutely amazing.
Kbota is one heck of a crawfish boil master.

For all of you guys who had to wash windows this weekend, or some other very important activity, you missed the PC event of the year. If it were me, I would circle the last weekend in September right now, because Worried Guy will not be outdone.

Tony, you are on. You plan it, they will come. We decided that we need one in each geographic region of the country, and then have an annual one someplace. Also decided that the board of directors must attend each regional one too.

I just can't explain how neat of an experience it is. I have many more lifelong friends.

Goodlife

While I was in New Orleans, I was greatly disappointed to find out that the local Walmart did not carry a BATTER BOWL - a three part contraption - bottom bowl, sifter, and top bowl - like the one used lightly dry batter the CAJUN CATFISH FRY- as well as onion rings, mushrooms (much better than a wet batter)
:-)

I did find one online in Calgary so it is winging its way here to Peterborough. I will be using the bowl and baking the fish in the oven (350 F for 20 minutes for catfish fillets) instead of deep frying - or pan fry it using the Canadian Method - 10 minutes per 1 inch thickness -

Food is part of the celebration of life and I am grateful to Cajun Jeff and the others sharing their expertise and insights. And surprise - I even lost weight during my trip! ( 5 lbs... must have been all that exercise during the crawfish boil)

Here is the recipe I did for the GFMPH Breakfast Casserole - thought this might be an easier way to share with the guys who asked for it...
all the best,
hugs,
BRONSON
-----------------------------
egg sausage breakfast casserole

NOTE: I doubled it up for the GFMPH and used a disposable alumunium foil casserole pan - so you may have to adjust what size of glass casserole dish you use to avoid any spill over -

-for 4 people -
ingredients
- one llink of smoked sausage - andouille or another long smoke sausage - put in small pan and cook on medium high for a bit to rendered it/ reduce the fat - then paper towel dried and then sliced into coins - let cool-

- one bunch of asparagus - snapped and cut into 1/2 inch length segments

- 1/2 onion - peeled and coarsely chopped

- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 1/2 tespoon ground black pepper

- 6 eggs (original recipe called for 4 - so you can adjust to your taste) - lightly beaten - break up the yolks

- 2 cups of milk

- 6 slices of bread - fresh or day-old - you can tear them up or cut into 1 inch squares - put on cookie sheet and toast in oven at 350 F for 15 minutes - let cool - 

- 16 oz of shredded cheese ( I like aged or the mozz-cheddar mix)

directions
1- when bread and sausage are cool to the touch - in a medium bowl - mix together the eggs, asparagus, sausage, onion, milk, salt and pepper
2- put toasted bread pieces in bowl and mix thoroughly
3- add 8 ounces of the shredded cheese and mix thoroughly
4- pour mixture into greased 9 x 13 (may need bigger) casserole dish - level out the mixture lightly
5- scatter the remaining cheese on top of the mixture in the casserole dish
6- cover with aluminum foil and place in preheated oven - 350 F for 1 hour
7- after 1 hour - uncover and bake for another 30 minutes
8- let cool for a few minutes - cut casserole into six portions ( so you can go back for guilt-free seconds) and serve

ENJOY!

Did Jeff throw some hushpuppies in there too? It all sounds great....sorry I was not there.

The best fried catfish I ever had (many years ago) was at a place called Middendorfs, not far from Baton Rouge. It was on Manchac Pass which connects Lake Pontchartrain with Lake Maurepas on old Hwy 51. If it is still there, check it out....unless, of course, Jeff and Bronson are cooking again.
